1 Valrae Reynolds with Contributions By Janet Gyatso, Amy Heller, and Dan Martin
From the Sacred Realm: Treasures of Tibetan Art from the Newark Museum
Prestel; Munich, Germany; 2000; 379132148X / 9783791321486; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Ranging from the 11th to the 20th century, ritual silk brocade garments, painted leather pieces, ceremonial silver objects, intricately worked ornaments, prayer wheels, and Buddhist paintings and sculpture, are all lavishly illustrated in From the Sacred Realm. The lucidly written texts provide an in-depth insight into the remarkable and fascinating culture of Tibet. The outstanding Tibetan collection held by The Newark Museum stems from a treasure trove of objects originally brought together by the missionary Dr. Shelton during his stay in Eastern Tibet from 1904 to 1920. Over the course of the twentieth century this unique collection has grown considerably, showing a breadth of artworks of the highest quality, representing all aspects of Tibetan culture. From the Sacred Realm: Treasures of Tibetan Art analyzes these fascinating, multifaceted works of art, and provides an overview of the museumís holdings. Scenes of everyday life, the role of the nobility, and the official Buddhist establishment are covered in the essays and illustrated by numerous color plates. Black-and-white photographs taken prior to the Chinese occupation document a world culture, much of which has now been lost forever. Printed Pages: 246 with 146 color illustrations. 001132

Hidden Treasures of the Himalayas: Tibetan Manuscripts, Paintings and Sculptures of Dolpo
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2010; 193247644X / 9781932476446; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In 1999, a hidden library was found in the Nesar Temple at a remote village of Bicher, in Dolpo, Nepal. It contains more than six hundred volumes of Tibetan manuscripts, ranging in date from the late 11th to the early 16th century. This library in many ways constitutes a cultural history of Dolpo in this period thanks to some sixty volumes with historical prefaces explaining the commission of the manuscripts for the Nesar Temple, while more than one hundred other volumes have illuminations of the scenes of the life of the Buddha and episodes from the Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) texts. These illuminations inform us about the donors, their costumes, their Buddhist rituals while the dedications tell us about the systems of patronage and donation. Some illuminations reflect the ancient manuscripts of Tabo and Tholing, others reflect the sophisticated Newar aesthetic of Kathmandu and all these diverse tendencies reached Dolpo where they were appreciated.  By studying these texts within and examining the styles of the manuscript illuminations, Amy Heller was able to shed light on the history of this remote Tibetan enclave, the spread of Buddhism in the Himalayas and its artistic legacy. The manuscripts, sculptures and mural paintings discovered in Dolpo are the concrete expression of the complex economic, political, artistic and religious interactions between the people of Dolpo and their neighbours in India, Nepal, and Tibet. In addition to the illuminations selected for publication, the reader will find in this volume a complimentary DVD that includes photographs of all volumes with historic dedications, all the illuminations and historic documents preciously conserved in Bicher village. A combination of Amy Hellerís fine contributions, beautifully illustrated photographs, and a useful and accessible DVD makes this volume an important addition to the library of every scholar, collector, and academic institution with an interest in Himalayan studies. Printed Pages: 252 with 176 colour illustrations. 033071
